Stampin’ Up! Painted with Love Birthday Card

I love gold. I really love pink and gold together, so when I browsed through the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog and saw this Painted with Love designer paper that had shiny gold swooshes and stripes all over it I was excited.  I continued flipping through the pages until the sequin embossing folder caught my eye- it’s glorious!!

At this stage in my life, and this close to Vday, I don’t really need to make Valentine cards, so I decided to use the paper for a Birthday card. I always need birthday cards.

Hearts Come Home Decor

For this year’s annual Stampin’ party, I knew I wanted to use the Hearts Come Home framelits. I hit Home Goods to find the perfect hurricane vase. I flipped it over to measure the circumference and draw a circle template for the base to hide the cords and to figure out how many inches of town I needed to die cut.

I started with Shimmery White 4″ high card stock, running it through the Big Shot with the steeple at the top. I pieced together two strips to fit around the entire base. I made a smaller layer for the top. The battery box is under layer one which also has fairy lights wrapped around the outside and inside. In the base, I cut a thin slit to pull the lights through.

Joy to the World is heat embossed in gold. Here’s the finished project. Do you love it as much as I do?!

Fall DIY Love

Fall has arrived!  I am so glad that cooler days are among us. It’s almost Thanksgiving and that means wine; lots of wine.  My favorite hostess gift for all of our Thanksgiving and Friendsgiving festivities is a Trader Joe’s flower bunch and a nice bottle of red wine with a handmade wine bottle tag.  It says- thanks, you are special and worth the time to create a little something extra.

This DIY wine bottle tag is no exception. Its easy, but exceptional. The supplies are listed at the end of this post.  Below are the dimensions and directions.

  2. Punch 2″ circle in middle of small scored top section to make bottle neck hole.
  3. With scrap paper underneath, in the darkest color, Fresh Fig, ink and stamp 3-4 flowers making sure that parts of the sunflowers are extending off of the tag. Clean stamp and repeat in Berry Burst, clean and repeat in Crushed Curry ink.
  4. Using the flower center, stamp Crumb Cake interiors to each flower. Precision not required.
  5. Cut a piece of Berry Burst card stock to 1″ x 3″.  Stamp “the best wines” from Half Full stamp set in Versamark. Cover with Copper embossing powder, tap off excess and heat with tool until shiny. Let dry for 30 seconds.
